Mount Hakone is a popular resort area due to the presence of hot baths (onsen) and the proximity to the Tokyo area. Many trains and express link Tokyo to the region. We took the cable-car to the summit of Mt Hakone on a rainy day but enjoyed nevertheless the experience. A very popular dish on mount Hakone is the black egg (Kuro-tamago) cooked in a thermal pool right on the mountain flank. Also, don’t miss the delicious black ramen!
